Everyone who works in law knows that, at times, it can be a challenging field. Unfortunately, legal professionals struggle with mental health and substance use issues at significantly higher rates than the general public. Many of us experience stress, anxiety, and depression at times throughout our careers. The pandemic has heightened our isolation, anxiety or sense of being overwhelmed. The LSO's highly successful inaugural Mental Health Summit last year brought the lived experience of these challenges to our notice, shining light on what we may experience and how it can affect us and our professional obligations. This year, we continue these important discussions to focus on practical strategies that each of us can implement in our professional – and personal – lives to support our well-being. We hope you will join us as we continue these important conversations.

  • Get some tips and tools for talking about mental health with your colleagues
  • Consider ways to support your and your colleagues' mental health by practising law differently
  • Hear about existing options for peer support
